-Pupils and colleagues may not feel valued or able to keep their self-esteem if their private details are shared with others. -Children and staff safety may be put at risk if details of their property and habits are shared publicly. Every teaching assistant should be aware of school confidentiality policy, a written document that outlines a school’s plan to protect student information. These documents attempt to define boundaries that identify what type of information can be shared and what types of individuals are authorized to view it.

Schools consists of varieties of teachers , who are responsible for teaching and caring for the students throughout the day. People may argue that schools should support both individuality and conformity to an extent.These two goals are completely contradicting to one another, the betterment of individuals and the betterment of society as a whole. I argue that schools need to focus on individuality more than any else. Schools fail to do this by enforcing dress codes, having mandatory classes and control of the school day structure. Dress codes are claimed to help students focus on the lessons rather than each other.
It is important for schools to have SROs because the SRO’s role on school campus is keeping students safe and supporting the education mission not only as law enforcement officer but also as a teacher and a counselor. They aren’t at schools “just to bust people.” School Resource Officers are there to teach about the law and students rights and also to protect and help students succeed in a safe learning environment; this equals less crime and more success. Crime and Disciplinary Infractions on Campus and Beyond

Children and their education are one of the if not most important factors for our future as a country and as individuals. Maria Montessori and Colin Powell take stances on opposing views when it comes to structure such as desks or basic learning opportunities in the classroom, to teacher intervention when it comes to helping a child. Maria Montessori and Colin Powell have contrasting views when it comes to matters regarding education and structure. Colin Powell uses the quote “The kids who didn’t have that structure or minding in the beginning,... and they start to realize … and they’re on their way to jail or on they’re on their way to being dropouts” to directly support his claim that without any layout of structure in the students life,
Identify the legal (citing specific education laws) AND ethical (citing specific OCT principles) issues. (1-2 pages) The legal and ethical issues in the Incapacity Case Study are based on the actions that took place while the teacher was in the presence of students and others in the school. The ethical issue violations include those of care, respect and integrity, while the education laws that are called into question are those of morals and absences The ethical standards of the OCT are vital values for teachers to be successful in a school. Care is outlined as involving compassion, acceptance and interest for one’s students, which the teacher did not follow through her yelling of curse words and her disregard for illegal actions taking place under her supervision. The OCT ethical standards on respect involve aspects of human dignity and emotional wellness.
It is in the hands of our current school administrators, teachers, and lastly students, to enact real change in hopes of achieving true racial equality. Racism and classism management in schools today What if you were not offered the same opportunities based merely off of the color of your skin? What if your peers thought lesser of you because of how much your parents made? It may seem like something of the past, but these manifestations of racism and classism continue to lurk among the depths of schools across the globe.

As an educator, it is important that I create a supportive learning environment. To do this I must implement school, curriculum and legislative requirements. My school and system requirements include reporting unsafe and unexpectable behaviour on the detention board (4.4.2). Another school requirement that promotes student’s well-being and safety is the Keys to Success behaviour system. The whole- school approach is implemented in my classroom and on the playground.
Denis Williams, the principle of Nutley High School includes in the student handbook that “searches of a ‘cursory’ nature may be conducted, including a visual inspection and request that students empty pockets, purses, and other belongings,” (Williams, 21). The decision for schools, like Nutley High, to include such decisions in their policies is to maintain a safe school environment, and therefore, keep students secure. This concept of whether more security is needed, in exchange for liberties of the people, or vise versa, started during the Enlightenment period, were philosophers like John Locke, argued different positions of the topic. Although some philosophers wanted less security in the name of the people’s liberties, others found that
However, there are some limitations and the result is not always be true. This statement is based on an assumption that parents can distinguish the right from wrong. Therefore, they can teach children discipline through administering punishment and setting strict rules. Parents can only use corporal punishment as means of discipline but not a way to release anger. Moreover, the article assumes that children are obedient to their parents.
